Take Ivy


This post is inspired by the book Take Ivy, a collection of photos taken on Ivy League campuses in the 60's by Japanese photographer Teruyoshi Hayashida, to capture the style of the times and men's fashion in America.  This rare book has since been reprinted in the U.S. and documents a great testament to fashion coming full circle.  Hmm...gift inspiration anyone?
